Suicide Squad Trailer

Check out what director David Ayer had to say in the latest issue of Total Film Magazine about Suicide Squad as well as some images.

In your normal comic-book movie you have the good guy, the hero, and there's a checklist and you can reverse engineer their actions from any given situation because they're going to do the right thing. These are bad guys, so they have a lot more options open to them in any given situation. They're capable of anything, and that's the fun of this.

What Jared has done is absolutely incredible. When he steps onto the set the world stops. Everything stops. What he's done is so powerful, so menacing, so palpable, you can feel him. The crew stops working and just watches him. I have to get everybody going again because he's so fascinating.

What's interesting to me is how there's been a lot of perceptions of what this film is because we have been exposed more than other movies. What people think this movie is is not what it is. There's so much more to come.

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
